mitchellville where the officers are awaiting. as you may recall, officer morris was killed last monday in a car crash. he lost control of his cruiser and veered into a ditch while pursuing robbery suspects. those two suspects have now been arrested. he was only on the force for 2.5 years. but everyone says he just left such an impression on eveyone he came in contact with. he was only 23 years old when he died. but his family says that he has wanted to be a police officer ever sce he was a little boy. coming back out live now, we want to show you we have the program here for the funeral. i was just kind of flipping through it. it shows a lot of his pictures. he grew up in jamaica, that even when he was a little kid he wanted to be a police officer. he came here to the united states as a teenager first in florida. and then ee he eventually came to maryland at eleanor
9:05 am
roosevelt high school. then when he was 16, he joined the police explorer program. and in high school he lived out his dream of becoming a police officer. his family says in the program he wore the uniform proudly and represented everything that it stood for but that he would -- he loved so much working as a police officer that even when he was off duty he would listen to radio calls and would literally leave a meal to assist fellow officers. that was the kind of a young officer he was and leaving a huge hole here in prince george's county. >> big loss for the community and certainly obviously for his family and friends. thank you. new this morning the investation into a possible meth lab in arlington was a false alarm. it began as acalled for a domestice disturbance call around 10:30 last night in the

i'm barack obama and i approve this message  now mitt romney's attacking the president on medicare? the nonpartisan a-a-r-p says obamacare "cracks down on medicare fraud, waste, and abuse and strengthens guaranteed benefits." and the ryan plan? a-a-r-p says it would undermine medicare and could lead to higher costs for seniors... and experts say ryan's voucher plan could raise future retirees costs more than six thousand dollars. get the facts.
9:21 am
another big boost in prices
9:22 am
at the gas pump. tropical storm isaac is threatening gulf coast refineries and if they have to shut down, you could feel it in your wallet. joining us now from chicago is phil flynn with price futures group. he is also author of the daily energy report and is a fox business contributor. i have several questions. first tropical storm isaac. i understand it's in the gulf. that could cause some of these refineries to shut down for a period of time. but is it going to affect everybody in the country? how many people get their oil from the gulf? >> it will affect everybody in the country if there is major damage mainly because some of the biggest refineries in the country are in the gulf of mexico. you only have to look at indiana and california where they lost refineries and see the ripple effect.
9:23 am
if you get a shortage of oil or gas at one part of the country, they have a tendency to move oil and gas around to fill those needs. and if that happens, of course, all prices go up. the other thing you have to keep in mind, 70% of all oil production is offline in the gulf of mexico as of last night. that drives up the cost of oil when you have less oil higher gas prices. >> no pun intended here but isn't some of that oil already in the pipeline as it were and so how quickly will prices rise? it seems like this happens and prices rise overnight which is nonsensical to me. >> it wouldn't be if you understood what's going on down in the gulf of mexico right now. people are panic buying. wholesalers are panic buying. in the washington area, you may have only seen prices go up a penny or two. in the cash markets in those areas, they have gone up 30
9:24 am
cents a gallon overnight. the reason that is, is because when those refineries are shut down, if they have to meet contracts and get supply those prices go up almost immediately. so there's definitely a threat to supply. i'm impressed that the market isn't up more than it is and the prices haven't gone up more considering the fact of the track of the storm. we are going right into new orleans. some of the major import terminals are at risk. some of those refineries if they get flooded we could see a substantial rise in prices across the country maybe 30 cents a gallon. obviously if the storm doesn't do any damage, you will get a hurricane bonus. prices will probably fall more than they went up in anticipation of the storm. >> at the beginninof the summer
9:25 am
there was talk there could be a downturn in gas prices and they dropped for a time but have been going up. what happened? did we not get the downturn? >> we have had had a run of bad luck. it's been like murphy's law. i think right now, long term gasoline prices are nearing probably a historic peak. we are seeing a big shift in oil production in the country. we are going to be less dependent on oil imports from the middle east. and at the same time, we are creating cars that are going to be more fuel-efficient in the future. so i think that the era of high gases price is coming to an end. but mother nature has her say and she is having that say in delaying that prospect next couple of days. >> all right. phil, good to have your analysis on our air. we appreciate it. good to see you.
9:26 am
hopefully we'll talk to you soon. >> thank you. well, the redskins quick to scoop up a former raven who got the pink slip. breaking news this morning that billy kun difficult is joining the burgundy and gold. >> we just found out. we'll talk about that in a few moments. also, isaac slowly turning toward the gulf coast could reach hurricane strength today. up next preparations are under way. we'll also get a check with tucker, who is tracking the storm. stay with us. it's 9:26. a new world-class resort casino in prince george's county. two thousand construction jobs to build it. four thousand permanent, good-paying jobs when it's done. hundreds of millions for maryland schools... real oversight to make sure the money goes... where it's supposed to. but none of it will happen unless we vote for... question seven this november. vote for question seven. and help build a better future for maryland.
9:27 am
9:28 am
9:29 am
welcome back, everybody. skyfox bringing us a life picture here. what we're attempting to show you is the thousands of police officers and people from around the region in prince george's county, there you see the procession there going -- they will gather to bid a final
9:30 am
farewell to a young hero, prince george's county police officer who was killed in the line of duty. of course, he is 23-year-old adrian morris. today that funeral service is taking place for this fallen prince george's county these are the latest pictures courtesy of skyfox. >> this will be a long procession as it travels along in maryland impacting traffic in the region so be aware this has begun and will be going on for some time. in other news, the gulf coast continues to brace for tropical storm isaac. folks are fortifying their homes some already in shelters then there are those who just aren't taking any chances right hand agetting out of town. a state of emergency has been issued in louisiana, alabama and mississippi. >> transportation resources are available for those who need help, shelters available for
9:31 am
those who need help and others with resources, pets and special medical needs there are resources available. >> our concern is that residents may decide to wait until later tuesday night or wednesday to start leaving or moving from the area. that would put you in the dark in perhaps 60-mile-an-hour winds in the rain. those are not the conditions that you want to move your family forward. >> the mayor of new orleans did not activate mandatory evacuations, although one of our reporters earlier did indicate there were now some mandatory evacuations in place. >> i find that strange especially when you think new orleans and hurricanes of course you think the worst. i find that strange that they wouldn't make those mandatory. >> yeah. obviously, i'm not privy to when the evacuations -- whether they're mandatory or not. it's still only a tropical storm. that's probably a big player. maximum winds only 70 miles an hour. with katrina the winds were 125
9:32 am
miles an hour when it made landfall so big difference in the intensity of the storm. doesn't mean it's not dangerous. the first bands of rain starting to approach new orleans. let's go to the radar. you can see the tropical bands now starting to move into portions of louisiana and mississippi and that's the leading edge of isaac as it moves in from the south and east. still, the center about 100 miles to the south and east of the mouth of the mississippi river here so this is going to be a big story. you can see the rain just starting to move in and i think the rain totals will be absolutely staggering when we're all done, maybe 20, 25 inches of rain for parts of southeast louisiana, mississippi here, over the next couple of days. let me show you the bigger picture. what's been happening overnight isaac continues to do its best to intensify. still a tropical storm, but don't be surprised at all if it's not a hurricane shortly. there is the eye trying to develo and the eye wall.
9:33 am
it's been doing the best it can to contain that wall. once it gets going, it will intensify and official forecast calls for a strong category 1 hurricane over the next 24 hours. and winds will be approaching about a 90 maybe 100 miles per hour in gusts as it moves inland just to the west of new orleans over the next 24 hours later tonight into early tomorrow so again, storm surge 6 to 12 feet lots of rain and a very slow moving storm. that's the other big story. the winds 70 miles per hour but the storm only moving at 7 miles per hour. and we'll bring some heavy rain and a slow-moving storm not good news for northern gulf of mexico. for us, we're looking brighter. we had showers move through early. we'll get rid of showers and on the live shot sunshine broke out. should be a beautiful afternoon around here just a thin band of rain showers. we have a cold front that's moved through early this morning. and with clearing off to the north and west, a lot of sunshine building in gorgeous day for us. high temperatures upper 80s to
9:34 am
90. here's the best part. less humidity than what we have had around here for the past several days. so humidity will be waning. 76 now, highs in the upper 80s to 90 this afternoon. 79 in leonardtown. let's see. culpeper 73. here's the five-day forecast. and again, i want to emphasize how nice the weather is going to be around here. it will be warm today, but without a lot of humidity should feel good. comfortable tonight, next couple of days, high temperatures in the 80s. we'll warm up to the low 90s by saturday. let me mention looks like the remnants of isaac could bring us some rain showers, programs thunderstorms, could be a wet day sunday, monday, question marks but at least the possibility. so remember, we could see some rain before the end of the weekend. wisdom martin has joined us on the set as we do a little sports. >> all right. >> this has become necessary all of a sudden. >> right. >> it would appear this morning that there's a little
9:35 am
controversy going on add redskins park involving the starting kicker. yesterday we thought grant gano thought the starting job was his, released rackers, they kept gano but now they have hired billy cundiff who the ravens cut yesterday and they are releasing graham gano. gave ross is on the phone with break news -- dave ross is on the phone with breaking news from redskins park. dave, can you shed some light on that? we lost him. we'll reestablish the connection but this is what's being tweeted. >> here's the deal. graham gano was the guy for the redskins. he didn't even kick during the preseason. he's not hurt. not to our knowledge. he didn't kick. so clearly he was going to be the guy for the redskins then out of the blue, all of a sudden the ravens dropped by billy cundiff who missed the field goal last year and now all of a sudden we don't want gano we want cundiff. >> i thought i saw gano kick during preseason both him and
9:36 am
rackers kick but dave, we have dave ross on the phone. dave? >> i am here. [ signal breakup ] >> okay. it sounds like you're a robot on mars. [ laughter ] >> let's try it for a moment. what are you hearing? what's going on? why has this decision been made? >> reporter: well, this a big surprise to me because i heard them say rackers was cut yesterday and we all assumed gano won the job and while his percentage was only 73.8% in his three years with the skins it was one of the lowest in the league, he had missed 10 kicks last year but five of them were because of bad protection up front so even the coach told me hey, he only missed 5 kicks last year, 31 out of 36 is better than 31 out of 41 so i was surprised and gano was when he walked into redskins park and saw espn's chris russell and said hey, i have been given a pink slip, they have billy cundiff. i don't know how much of an
9:37 am
upgrade it is but certainly a surprise at this stage of the preseason. >> hasn't cundiff -- okay, the ravens released him for a reason. hasn't he struggled the last year? >> he has. and he is a i will bit older in the -- he is a little bit older and was kicked from the cowboys. i think they think he is more -- he has been through the fires of the envelope more than gano and if this team -- eight games last year were decided by 7 points oar less played a lot of close games they think a veteran kicker with the tenure more so than gano might be able to more of kicks in pressure situations. ironically as wisdom just said, he missed the biggest kick in ravens history last year a chip shot that would have put them over time in the afc champion against the patriots and here we are six months later and he is looking for work and found it with the redskins. >> the ravens were paying billy $2 million a year. do the redskins have that kind
9:38 am
of money to pay him? >> not really. that will make an interesting cap number. we talked about guys like chris cooley and whether they can keep him. if you are going to pay billy cundiff $2 million to kick, that will be at somebody else's kick. i'll be curious to see how it goes on friday when they have to cut 22 more players on friday. >> billy cundiff was kicking on a team that was relevant as far as the play-offs are concerned so him missing is a big deal. >> yes. >> in order for him to be relevant with the redskins, you have to be in a relevant situation. i think you know where i'm going with this. so if you are depending on your kicker to be the difference, you're in trouble. >> well, they believe wisdom they're not that far away and they had so many games last year decided by a touchdown or less that a kicker could help out in those situations. think about it. it's not just three points or less. they are thinking if we're in 50-yard range and lock this guy in and think he will make a percentage closer to 85% versus
9:39 am
73%, all of a sudden you changed the third down calls, that maybe they didn't have the confidence in with graham gano sitting back there but that's the rational is that billy cundiff will be more dependable in the long stretch this year in close games versus graham gano. i don't know if that's accurate but that's whatter in thinking. >> maybe they think a change of scenery will be good for him. dave ross, thank you very much for calling in shedding some light on this. again, apparently the redskins have signed rejected ravens kicker billy cundiff to the squad. thank you, gentlemen. >> always a pleasure. [ laughter ] >> we'll see how it goes. a show of support for prince harry. that's coming up next in the buzz bin. stay with us.  what does fall smell like?
9:40 am
head north, to someplace pristine like acadia national park. there is nothing like the parks this time of year. the falling leaves,
9:41 am
the crisp air, the perfect inspiration for air wick's fall collection. yeah, when i smell all those things, i know fall is in the air. the fall collection brought to you by air wick and the national park foundation. something in the air wick. but what choices will women be left with? just like mitt romney, paul ryan would get rid of planned parenthood funding. in congress, ryan voted to ban all federal funding for planned parenthood
9:42 am
and allow employers to deny women access to cancer screenings and birth control. and both romney and ryan backed proposals to outlaw abortion even in cases of rape and incest. for women... for president... the choice is ours. i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. lindsey lohan is now wanted for questioning by two police departments in california. according to tmz, santa monica police detectives are looking to talk with her about a car
9:43 am
crash in june. she told responding officers that she was a passenger in the car but officers are reportedly convinced that she was actually behind the wheel. meantime, lohan is a suspect in the $100,000 theft of watches and sunglasses from the home of millionaire sam ma gid. tmz reports that the lapd wants to speak with her about that but so far her lawyer refused. people around the world are backing prince harry by showing their front. >> a facebook group called support prince harry with a nekkid st. louis -- or naked salute as members take a look. [ laughter ] >> supporters are uploading their pictures in droves. police cover your crown jewels, tag yourself in your photo as proof of your support to the nation's favorite royal. >> ah, the fun loving brits. >> cute. >> not sure if that's an appropriate use of the flag.

9:47 am
a major part of slimming down is eating all of the right foods, of course. but we know that exercise is integral in losing weight. diana welland is a registered dietician and the coauthor of
9:48 am
the complete idiot's guide to belly fat weight loss. we saw tips on how to eat well and you brought in some wonderful dishes. those recipes are in the book. but i want to say the book is available at amazon.com, barnes & noble, all those places. when you pick it up, what is in it for its readers? >> well, it will give you all kinds of tips not only how to eat but also other lifestyle tips on how to lose belly fat because eating is a very big part but it's not the only part. and that's why we're going to be talking about physical activity. that's also a big part. stress can affects your belly fat and sleep. >> how much you sleep. i love that because -- you say about an 80/20 ratio. 80% is what you eat, 20% is how you move your body. >> yes. if you think about sleep and stress, they affect what you eat. not only affects what you eat but how much you eat. >> i could not agree with you
9:49 am
more. >> okay. so you brought -- i mean, this looks like artwork but it's actually a recommendation on getting a routine down so if you get some of that coveted sleep, right? >> absolutely. the first thing you should do is shut off all the eleronics. people go on the computer. but after that, try to get into a routine that will help you sleep better. tea is a great routine. this is a regular tea. you can also have decaf or herbal tea, glass of warm milk, anything that will help you relax, you just need to wind down the last half hour before you go to bed to help you sleep. >> here's a big question. a lot of us don't get the amount of sleep we need, the eight hours or whatever is recommended. how about if we get six hours and really good sleep like the quality of sleep? does that equal out the time that we're not getting with a little shut-eye if you know what i'm saying? >> you really need the quantity
9:50 am
of sleep. >> okay. >> obviously, good sleep is better than having a restless sleep and as we age it actually gets harder for us to get that quality sleep. so you really want to kind of as we said if you wind down, have a really nice routine, some people take a bath before they go to bed, just relax and then that also reduces stress. >> speaking of stress, that's the other part of this, sleeping stress. you brought a prop to show how to get rid of that stress. >> squeeze a ball. take deeper breaths. that's calming. the problem is, we have sort of a low level of stress chronic stress in our lives and this chronic stress is actually what raises cortisol levels which makes food more appealing and especially sugary foods and foods that aren't necessarily

as good for us, makes them a little more appealing to us and also reduces or energy expenditure and, you know, helps -- -- >> that's okay. it's all in there and it's all in the book. >> right. >> before i let you go, i want to ask quickly if you're just starting to exercise, how much should we be doing? and should we be also as we get into it more say the moderate to experienced person with working out, how much should we be doing? >> you should be doing at least two hours a week. >> that's not bad. >> not that much. >> the good news is the take- home message is diane says it is not that hard to lose that belly fat. a lot of us struggle with that but diane says it's not hard. so don't take it personally when she calls us idiots. it's for our benefit. diane welland, the complete idiot's guide to belly fat

9:53 am
know, a free-for-all getting everybody exposed to shakespeare. >> oh, it's the best. yeah. it's -- i have done not here but another shakespeare in the park somewhere else and it's amazing -- this is no longer in the park, obviously, but to see hundreds and sometimes thousands of people come in and know that a lot of them either don't regularly go to the theater or don't get to see shakespeare. it's a different audience than we're used to and it's fantastic. >> what would you say? sometimes shakespeare can be intimidating or maybe it just really s how do you say to them go on, give it a chance? >> well, shakespeare is intimidating on the page. when you first open up a shakespeare play and read it it is hard to get used to but when you worked on it and you're telling the story it opens it up in a way that's just beautiful, beautiful storytelling. it's so very exciting and he wrote it for people who weren't
9:54 am
necessarily educated. so it's not as hard as it seems at first glance. >> you will get it. just give it a chance. >> it's not like it was in high school when you were -- it was forced on you and you had the read the whole thing in one night and didn't get it all and that. it's more fun. a lot more fun than that. >> reporter: when we talk about shakespeare in terms of acting, all serious actors do shakespeare. you're in school so for you to play a part like this do you feel like you're developing as an actor? >> immensely. shakespeare is such a challenge and it's sort of this, you know, holy grail in a sense, like if you can accomplish shakespeare, understand shakespeare, you sort of feel like i don't know confident t gives you a lot of confidence if you can dissect the script and understand the story line that's going on. >> reporter: i know your role involves a lot of comedy for the show. is it hard to do comedy in shakespeare? or is it naturally funny? >> i think it's just like i think each one of us sort of
9:55 am
it's a -- it's a very comedic show in a sense and that's why people like it but the comedy is in the words and so if you sort of just like let the words come out, i mean, like -- >> i'm the clown of the show sort of. i would say. >> yes. >> one of the two clowns. >> these are real persons. >> everything is like a circus clown. just like the -- i don't know. the comic relief. >> and his character is a great example of what's so great about shakespeare is that on the one hand, you can say he is perfectly ridiculous with you he is a human being and provides a really interesting part of the story because our relationship a big part of the play is why does my character spend anytime under the influence of this character? but i personally have in my life as a kid, you know, had a couple of bad influence this is my life that other people -- >> reporter: haven't we all? you know? but we get away from them. before we go, i know you played

your character in 2010. is it fun to come back into the role? is it like riding a bike or do you do something different? >> it's like riding a bike, the lines come back and things you remember, but definitely one of the reasons to do it is because there is a chance to do it differently and better and there are new people and it changes everything because you're talking to a different person, this is a different space and it's more exciting. i think of we have kicked it up a couple of notches. >> reporter: you need to see them come kick it up a couple of notches. myfoxdc.com is our website. we have a link to the shakespeare theater company. you can get in a lottery the day before the show or stand in line outside the theater. we'll have more "fox 5 morning news" when we come back. stay with us. it's time to change the way we clean. it's time to free ourselves from the smell and harshness of bleach. and free ourselves from worrying about the ones we love. new lysol power & free has more cleaning power than bleach.
